About the workshop:
----------------------
The Fiore manuscripts are richly illustrated and many people feel like learning from them will be an easy task.
But the few textual context of the techniques makes it a more difficult task than it seems.
Yet Fiore gave it a clever structure that makes it something more dense and more complete than it seems at first sight.
With the experience and guidance from Dario, this workshop will bring the main keys to unlock the understanding of this rich system and allow people willing to explore Fiore to be well equiped afterwards in the exploration of those manuscripts.

Hi pals! Happy new year from tomorrow on!

So, after earlier today I pointed out that a recently issued review of a very hot product was quite poorly done, quite many people hit me on messenger to ask me what “a good review” would be in my opinion.

So I figured out I coul...

As a topic that is core to my own understanding of Fiore, and as a prominent part of what I start off from when teaching, I want today to discuss the cause of the long debated difference between Liechtenauer and Fiore approaches to fencing. Please, please, read this en...

For a couple months now I've been saying that an Educational Program was to be launched soon. But what is it?
